City of Bunbury councillor Judy Jones has confirmed she will retire from public life in Bunbury after 32 years of service.
Ms Jones has chaired the board of Aqwest for the past four years after joining in 2011. The role will be filled by deputy chairman Neville Eastman.
Ms Jones has been a City of Bunbury councillor for 32 years, including nine years as Deputy Mayor.
She has also been a member and chair of the Bunbury Cemetery Board for 25 years and a member of the Bunbury-Harvey Regional Council for 27 years.
In her career, Ms Jones has also served on the boards of Alliance housing, South West Regional Roads Group, Stirling Street Arts Centre and the Bunbury Aged Persons Housing Collection.
Ms Jones said she had thoroughly enjoyed her many roles and will leave Bunbury to retire.
“I've certainly appreciated the opportunities to be part of Aqwest and other organisations in Bunbury,” Ms Jones said.
“It has given me a sense of personal satisfaction to contribute in some way.”
Aqwest chief executive officer Brad Bevis said Ms Jones had been a strong advocate for the company to remain as an independent water corporation and thanked her for her six years of service.
"Judy has always supported Aqwest as the independent supplier of potable water to Bunbury and in maintaining a shop front presence in Bunbury to serve the community," Mr Bevis said.
"Aqwest strives to be at the forefront of customer service and Judy has been a strong supporter of our staff in carrying out and providing that service."
